Summit Focus:

Retailers: The Age of Disruption and Search for Omnichannel Excellence


From the 17th – 19th October 2016 the 14th Bi-Annual NG Retail Summit Europe will bring together a diverse group of 65 senior retail decision makers and business leaders from across Europe.

Across the retail sector, it is fair to say that we are in the midst of a retail revolution. The overall environment is changing at a frightening pace, challenging existing business models and introducing significant operational and organizational pressures.

Through essential business conversation and extensive networking, the event aims to solve key business challenges around omni-channel development, in-store innovation and supply chain optimisation.

The key themes of ‘How do you build connected relationships both with your customers and staff? How is digital disrupting both your business and operating model?’, ‘Is data the key to omni-channel success? What analytical and organisational skills do you require in the future?’ and ‘Fulfilling customer expectations with the smart supply chain’ form the foundation of the event and permeate every layer of the content-rich program. From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside leading retail organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations; the NG Retail Summit Europe provides you with plenty of reasons to engage and network with industry peers.

Three Key Themes for the Event


Data and Insight – Bridging the Gap between Theory and Execution


Stores, Online etc. – Delivering a Channel Agnostic Customer Proposition


Building the Smart Supply Chain: More Goods to More Destinations Faster
